This has been said so many times, so I'm going to capitalize it.

THE GAME IS NOT BALANCED.   THE ORE IS NOT EVEN.    THE START LOCATIONS ARE NOT EVEN.
Outpost 2 is a colony game, NOT another C&C clone!
THERE IS GOING TO BE MAJOR IMBALANCES BECAUSE OF THIS!
As for Eden being "Disadvantaged"
They are NOT as bad as people make it out they are.
Eden is almost unkillable once it gets Thor Hammer Tiggers en masse.
Eden was originally designed to be expensive on the ore.   Their combat units cost more then Plymouth's.
While it is agreed that the laser is not good early in game, thats why you rush Railguns and EMPs!   Failure to do so results in your death.
There are other tactics you can use, but I'm not going to go into them.   Figure them out yourself.
Eden requires you to be careful.   It requires you to use tactics.
In the early game, they CANNOT win a shooting war with Plymouth.   Find alternatives.   Harrass.   Get them to fight other people.
All else fails, PLAY PLYMOUTH.
... You seem to not realize that it was RR and Midas that we were playing.

Then what the hell is the real issue? Just the fact that the game spawns with different layouts and ore setups? In which case we ned to get over that speedy quick - it's not going to change.

Lmao.. Sorry- forgive me for attempting grammatical correctness - two words, or a word and a prefix - Sir and Bomber- only natural for me to capitalize them.

I don't mind if ya call me ThaBlkPanda.. even though it takes substantially more effort, and Tha isn't a word, neither is Blk...
